Gorgeous SOMA loft in a fantastic location!


Great, central location. Award-winning restaurants, nightlife and public transportation all within easy walking distance. Same with Union Square, Moscone Center, Whole Foods and much more.

SOMA has quickly become the hottest neighborhood in SF with (website hidden), Foursquare, Reddit, Square, Yelp and many other startups calling it home. Airbnb got it's start a few doors down from me!

Check out my guidebook for recommendations on great, neighborhood restaurants and bars.

  • Peter's SOMA loft is definitely a great option when staying in San Francisco. Peter was always helpful and friendly and my family really enjoyed staying at his place. It is in a very convenient area with a lot of different and interesting options to dine and have a great time. The loft is really spacious, clean and comfortable and when Peter says it is quiet... believe him. Even though the area can be a little noisy, inside the loft you can rest and relax all you want. My family and I will definitely stay in Peter's loft next time we are in San Francisco.

  • My family really enjoyed staying at Peter's place. The loft is very spacious and beautiful, well equipped and clean.
    We had a few additional requests, all of which were accommodated. Peter's response time was great, he answered all questions by email and phone right away and was extremely helpful.
    The location was also great, very close to Market street, nice restaurants nearby, also the Whole Foods is only about 15 min walk.
    I would definitely rent Peter's loft again and would recommend it to anyone visiting SF.
    Thank you, Peter!

  • We had a great time in Peter's apartment. It was very well equipped and he answered very quickly any question. He was very helpful with the bag that the Airline lost.

  • My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our one week stay at Peter's beautiful loft. It looked exactly like the pictures - bright, roomy, and clean. It was nice to have the patio to enjoy quiet, sunny afternoons and dining outside.

    The location was within easy walking distance to Union Square (where you can hop on a cable car or shop at Westfield Shopping Centre), a grocery store, a farmer's market, and a great little restaurant (Radius) across the street. It's also within easy access to buses. We saw all the sights we wanted by walking and using our one week Muni pass.

    We really appreciated how helpful Peter was before and during our stay. He provided great information beforehand that helped us to plan each day of our trip. He contacted us the day we arrived to make sure all was well and stayed in touch during the week.

    Overall, we highly recommend a stay at Peter's place! It's beautiful and Peter is a great host.

  • Peter's place is like a wonderful oasis in the city, especially after a grueling day at the office! Immaculate, everything that you need and more. Peter is awesome too! Really responsive, super attentive and always available. I would recommend Peter's loft if you are in San Francisco on business, or pleasure.

    Ideally located to all transport links (BART, MUNI & CalTrain), close to Downtown and close to supermarket.

    I will definitely be staying back at Peter's when I am next in town. I highly recommend this place & Peter as a host!

  • Nice and comfortable loft in the SOMA area, with great restaurants and cafes nearby. Peter was a great guest, and though we never had the chance to meet, he wrote us several times during our stay to make sure everything was ok.

  • This was my first time using AirBnB. From the first instance, when we were simply inquiring about staying at Peter's place, he always got back to us promptly and answered questions. Peter is a great communicator. We never spoke on the phone. All communication was transacted via text or email. My preference. And Peter was spot on with all follow ups. Peter's approach and his place is first class all the way! The loft is located a 10 minutes or less walk from Market Street. The area his loft is located in is safe and my dad, my sister and I felt very comfortable even walking at night. The building is a secure - locked building. That being said there are some slightly dodgy areas with low rent hotels going towards Market, but you can easily avoid them buy taking Howard towards 5th and then to Market. The Loft: Its is everything the pictures show and more. Plenty of daylight in the living room from the large 10ft. plus windows looking towards Market and towards the North. The bedrooms have no windows and plenty of artificial light. The L shaped leather couch is super comfortable with lots of pillows and a sock monkey! Bedrooms: The bedrooms are spacious and well appointed. Very comfortable Queen beds. Plenty of quality sheets, blankets and pillows. Pretty much like staying in a 5 star hotel! Bathrooms: The bathrooms are large, both with tubs and glass door enclosed showers. Plenty of hot water and was fully stocked with toilet paper, a small amount of toiletries such as soap, shampoo and conditioner and lotion. Lots of plush towels. Noise: Really none to speak of. For all intent purposed the building is very quiet and situated in a quiet areas. Because there are neighbors living above the loft you may hear some footsteps at night but really I wasn't bothered by that at all. Kitchen: Full stocked kitchen. Wonderful 4 burner gas stove, Microwave, fridge and freezer. Double stainless sink. Fully stocked with dishes, cooking utensils. Dishes, glassware and silverware. Electric water kettle and Bodum French Press coffee service. This came in handy b/c we made our own Illy coffee every morning. You could have a dinner party there if you wanted too. Outside Deck: A locked door in the living room leads out to a very large shared open air walled semi private deck. I'd say easily 15ft x 15ft. With a few plants and a table and four chairs to relaxing, coffee, lunch, whatever. Cleanliness: Excellent. You can tell that Peter goes out of his way to maintain his place. I'm a neat freak and Peter's loft was up to my high standards. Laundry: There is an excellent {closeted} stacked washer and dryer inside the loft. Complete with detergent. I used it a few times. This was an added bonus. Wifi: Excellent Wifi in the loft living room. However, and I believe that it is because of the concrete and steel structure of the loft...
